How to Cure Candida in 6 Steps
Hey, guys. Axe here, of functionalmedicine and founder of DrAxe . Today I'm going to share with you the exact diet, treatmentand supplements you need to take the clear Candida from your body. And this is what Ireally consider to be my SixStep Candida Cure Diet Protocol. And you're going to seeamazing results with this protocol. And let me say this first, what is Candida?Candida is the overgrowth of yeast and bad bacteria in your body and it can cause somemajor symptoms that you want to get rid of. And so some of the symptoms of Candida caninclude any type of fatigue issue. If you struggle with chronic fatigue or adrenal fatigue,those can be related to Candida.
Any type of leaky gut issue. Leaky gut isintestinal permeability, where proteins like gluten can leak through your gut and causeinflammation of your body. So if you have food sensitivities or if you have digestiveissues like gas and bloating, also if you have any problem related to the thyroid, thosecan be warning signs you have Candida. Also if you get yeast in your body. If younotice, let's say, yeast or whiteness on your tongue or if you ever get chronic yeast infectionsor coming down with the cold and flu often, those can be warning signs that you have Candida.And, of course, also with Candida any sort of other digestive issues, like irritablebowel syndrome or chronic diarrhea or constipation
or even acid reflux, those are warning signsthat you might have Candida. And last but not least, is a sluggish metabolism.If you aren't losing weight and burning fat like you know you should be, those are warningsigns you could have Candida, along with actually even bad breath and lack of detoxification.Those are some major warning signs. So here are the six things you need to do to eliminateCandida fast. Number one, you need to stop consuming somuch sugar. Now, I know that's obvious. That's something that I think most of us realizeis that sugar feeds yeast in your body. But again, you have got to get rid of processedsugar, fruit juices, any sort of added sugar
to any sort of product sweetener. Even mostpackaged products and fast foods are also high in sugar. Even things like pasta saucesand crackers, you'd be surprised, but sugar is added to almost everything. So again, eliminate especially the processedsugar out of your diet. As a replacement, I recommend using a little bit of Stevia,which is a nocalorie natural sweetener and then about one to three teaspoons a day ofmanuka honey. Okay? Those are the sweeteners you should be using if you have Candida. Number two. You need to eliminate grains fromyour diet. Why? Because grains turn into sugar
and they also tend to be more inflammatory.And so again, getting those grains out of your diet, especially wheat products and glutencontaininggrains, that's step number two. Instead, do a lot more vegetables and maybe some starchycarbs. Number three thing you have to do to clearCandida from you system, is support your spleen. Now, this is cuttingedge information thata lot of people don't realize. And this is a practice in Ancient China that is oftenused by acupuncturists today. But they have found that the number one cause of Candidais a weakened spleen. And so if you have spleen issues, and spleen is responsible for digestionof the body, producing red blood cells in
your system. And so the spleen is a very importantorgan. In order to support the spleen, there area couple things you need to do. But really the spleen is supported by starchy foods,especially squash, things like sweet potatoes, butternut squash, and also even doing certaintypes of beans like lentils and mung beans. So again, getting some of those good starchycarbs. And that's really where your sweetness shouldcome from. A little bit of butternut squash, acorn squash, foods like that that has thatmild sweetness. That's the only sweet you should be really getting in your diet. Again,with no processed sugar and, again, very low
How Long Will It Take To Cure My Candida Yeast Infection
Good day, Eric Bakker, another FAQ here. Thisquestion is from Paul in Sydney, Australia. Erik, how long does it take for me to cureCandida? How long does it take for me to get well? Well, there's no real answer to this question,Paul. You know, I generally find many people with a yeast infection take on average betweenfour to six months to get well. But in saying that, it could take 8 months, 9 months, oreven 12 months. Some patients can take two years or more to get well. So to answer your question; my reply to youwould be what are you going to do to do what
it takes to get well? Are you going to eatthe right foods? Live the right kind of lifestyle? Are you going to rest plenty? Are you goingto have a good balance between work and play? It's a good question you're asking me, butmy reply would be you need to have a balanced lifestyle, eat the right kind of foods, andkeep working on that yeast infection for as long as it takes to get well. In my situation, it took about a year to getwell when I was in my 20s. I had a rather extreme case of Candida. If you've got a Candidainfection in the gut or perhaps in the groin region or in the foot region or if you'rea female with a vaginal yeast infection, it
depends on whether it's acute or chronic.It depends on whether you've taken antibiotics or not. So there are many variables to answeringthis question. But generally a yeast infection when you're on to it, you're doing the rightthings, on average you can account for about six months to get well. But if you've hada yeast infection for 10 years, it may take you 1 year get well. There's no real clear cut way to answer thatquestion, Paul. If you've got any more questions, I would say go and have a look at my YouTubechannel. You'll find lots of different questions there and responses to questions.
